    All-Island Business Angel Conference


    Powerscourt Hotel, Wicklow


    The all-day event aims to encourage more people to get involved in business angel investing, highlighting the opportunities and rewards that it presents.

    Business angel investment is continuing to grow across the island of Ireland, with an increasing number of start-ups receiving vital early-stage funding from individual angel investors and syndicates. In December last year, HBAN announced that its members have now invested more than €100M in start-ups across the island of Ireland since 2007.

    HBAN’s conference will explore the theme of ‘Driving value with exits and data’, with speakers discussing how data can inform better investment decisions and ultimately, lead to more exits. Meanwhile, a combination of talks, panel discussions and masterclasses will equip attendees with the knowledge they need to create a healthy portfolio.

    John Harbison, Chairman Emeritus of Tech Coast Angels (TCA), one of the largest and most active angel investment organisations in the US, will speak at the conference. An active investor, he has achieved returns ranging from 100x – 1,110x in five companies: Microsoft, Apple, Abbott Labs, Nucor and McGraw-Hill. Harbison will discuss how TCA has achieved a 4.9x overall multiple on its angel investments, and how it has developed insights using data analysis to give new angel investors the confidence to build and expand their portfolios.

    Dr. Jim Mountjoy, a serial investor and entrepreneur, will draw on his experience to provide insights into how angel investors can recognise a high-potential start-up and how to create value. Jim has spent the last twenty years acting as an investor, mentor, non-executive director and Chairman with a large range of individuals and companies, largely in the technology field. He founded telecoms software company, Euristix, which was sold for over $80 million, and has also had a number of successful exits in recent years.

    Áine Denn, co-founder of Altify, will tell the story of how the company’s leadership team built value in their company resulting in a sale to US tech firm, Upland Software, for $84M. Denn is passionate about giving back to the community and investing in people and businesses that challenge norms. She volunteers as a lead entrepreneur for the Irish government-sponsored programmes Going for Growth and Back For Business, helping to foster the success of female and returning emigrant entrepreneurs.

    DP-100: Designing and Implementing a Data Science Solution on Azure


    New Horizons Ireland


    Gain the necessary knowledge about how to use Azure services to develop, train, and deploy, machine learning solutions. The course starts with an overview of Azure services that support data science. From there, it focuses on using Azure’s premier data science service, Azure Machine Learning service, to automate the data science pipeline. This course is focused on Azure and does not teach the student how to do data science. It is assumed students already know that.

    This role is responsible for solving the business problem that initiated the project. While the Data Engineer will prepare the data to be used for the models, the Data Scientist determines what data is needed for model training, creates model features from the data, determines what machine learning model to use, trains and evaluates the model, and often has involvement in model deployment. Often the data scientist needs to evaluate multiple models to determine which performs the best.

    Cultural Sustainable Tourism – 2nd Edition


    Online


    Many economies and industries of the countries depend on tourism, which is able to direct the flow of the world. Cultural tourism is the subset of tourism that is concerned with the country’s lifestyle in certain geographical areas, such as their, art, architecture, rituals, festivals, and more values that help convey the culture of the country itself.

    Cultural tourism involves the visitor getting involved or in contact with the unique heritage and special character of a place. More awareness of the place’s values, languages, lifestyle, and customs is conveyed to the visitor. Through tourism, lays the possibility of associating cultures together, assisting in creating cohesion amongst the world’s inhabitants.

    Considering that culture and heritage are two important factors in attracting tourists, they maintain their stature as a resource for development, and for improving the economy.

    MSc in Blockchain – Distributed Ledger Technologies


    Online via Dublin City University


    2-yeas part-time course. 

    Blockchain is a rapidly growing technology with the potential to disrupt traditional practices across a wide range of industries. The lack of technical Blockchain skills is of national and international concern as it is a significant inhibitor to Blockchain adoption in companies across key industries including manufacturing, supply-chain, health, food, finance and the public sector.

    With its roots in Bitcoin and crypto currencies, Blockchain technology provides a distributed non-repudiable ledger. It works on decentralised platforms and offers significant advantages for business operations in terms of transparency, elimination of third parties, cost reduction, micropayments, cryptographic security, and permanent transactions. Blockchain enhances the speed and transparency of transactions along complex supply chains while reducing costs. It optimises back and middle business processes and transactions, augmenting security, reporting and regulatory and compliance profiles.

    IDA Ireland’s Blockchain strategy aims to promote Ireland as a European location for Blockchain developments and in 2018, the Minister for Finance published a discussion paper examining the potential of virtual currencies and Blockchain technology. Working with Blockchain Ireland, the Technology Ireland ICT Skillnet has identified the skills gap for software developers with the requisite Blockchain knowledge and development skills and is co-funding this new MSc as a direct response to this need.
